Come Welcome Fall 
Enjoy all the flavors of fall at the "Fall Flavor Festival" at Staehly Farm & Winery.
Not all activities or vendors will be on every day - Please note the day of attendance to avoid disappointment.
Food trucks available 12pm to 6pm or until they are sold out.


The first weekend of October is filled with activities all around East Haddam.
Take a scenic drive along Route 82 to Gillette Castle to see the changing leaves of the CT River Valley
and then head up to Devil's Hopyard to see the falls in autumn.
In between, enjoy a delicious lunch with activities for the kids too at Staehly Farm & Winery.



Wine Tasting (October 7th - 9th) 

Fall is the perfect season for Apple Wine! Enjoy a not-too-sweet blend of
Staehly Farms' own Honey Crisp, McIntosh, and Delicious apples in
four different apple wines. A full flight of wines (7) is availble for $8.00
and comes with a special stemless glass while supplies last.

A full list of wines and tasting notes is available by clicking here.

Pumpkin Patch & Harvest Barn (October 6th - 9th) 

Hundreds of pumpkins available to choose from in addition to special gourds.
After picking our your special pumpkin, stop by our farm market harvest barn,
which is chock full of fall treats like kettle corn, pumpkin butter,
locally-made Pumpkin Spice biscotti,
and of course everyone's favorite apple cider donuts.

Kids Hay Maze (October 6th - 9th) 

The free kids maze is open from 10 to 6 both days.
Enjoy a not-so-scary haymaze that winds through the Staehly Farms greenhouse.
Hidden passages, narrow corridors, and Halloween surprised make this 300-foot-long
path fun for kids eight and under, although everyone is welcome.

We have a strict "No Beverages" policy for our hay maze, to help keep it family-friendly.
